8 Great Linux Apps Worth Bragging About, part 2

Software

gLabels Label, Business Card, and Postcard Creator

gLabels is a great lightweight, easy label and business card creator. You don't have to fire up big ponderous OpenOffice to create labels; by the time it opens you'll be sending your gLabels job to the printer. gLabels supports every Avery label and card template in existence, which is a lot, and you can create custom templates. With a bit of ingenuity you can also make invitations and greeting cards. Making a page of labels that are all the same takes a couple of minutes, and it also supports mail merge for doing mass mailings or other kinds of labels that you want to pull from a database.
